Manny Fernandez was featured on the TV premier episode, which aired on Thursday, October 6th at 10pm. See 2 videos below!
In the episode of the season premiere, Fernandez was on a panel evaluating two inventions aiming to save lives. Goldilocks Valves, a device that could revolutionize the way nurses and paramedics perform CPR and the Aqua Blaster, a harness designed to make fighting fires safer and easier for those on the front line, will be spotlighted.
In each episode, the show follows hosts Deanne Bell and George Zaidan scour the country looking for amazing ideas they are convinced can make big money. The hosts track down the inventors and give them a second chance to bring their ideas and dreams to life. The inventors will then be given the resources and help they need to take their products from concept to reality; they’ll prototype, test and perfect their inventions while preparing for the biggest pitch of their lives.
Manny is extremely excited to have his DreamFunded.com be the first equity crowdfunding platform featured on a major primetime television show.
“I am extremely honored to be the first angel investor and equity crowdfunding platform CEO to be an investor on a mainstream major network TV show premiere,” commented Fernandez via email.
CNBC’s original primetime series “Make Me A Millionaire Inventor” is back for season two. Hosted by Deanne Bell and George Zaidan, “Make Me A Millionaire Inventor” seeks to locate new inventions and bring them to a larger market. They track down the inventors of potentially successful products, with the offer to “bring their ideas and dreams to life” by giving them the resources and expertise needed to take their products from concept to reality.
In the season premiere, the two inventions featured share the same goal: save lives. Deanne meets an emergency nurse who has invented the “Goldilocks Valves,” a device that could revolutionize the way nurses and paramedics perform CPR. While George teams up with a retired firefighter who has spent the past sixteen years developing the “Aqua Blaster,” a harness designed to make fighting fires safer and easier for those on the front line.
